that president bush won more of the tidewater region than did john mccain in 2008. if you were president obama and you were mitt romney, where would you focus your resources, larry? guest: you can tell by where they are visiting. romney spends a lot of time in the richmond area. he needs a big vote out of those localities, some of which voted for president obama. other various conservative localities like chesterfield county went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince gallia county and loudoun county -- prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is used in virginia? guest: the computerized systems are used almost everywhere. we have eliminated paper ballots

on mechanics. and while the romney campaign is certainly a lot better than john mccain's 2008 operation, the more this race focuses on mechanics, the better it is probably for the obama campaign. asked whether the storm could affect early voting, the president said that remains to be seen. >> we don't anticipate that at this point, but we're obviously going to take a look. >>> well, it's the october surprise. that we know. and the thing we don't know is what is exactly the impact going to be? we've got a lot of storm coverage to get to, and we'll get to that next. we'll go to point pleasant beach, new jersey. the storm is already kicking up serious waves there. we'll also head to florida. a state that knows storms well. that's where the president was supposed to be this morning opinion bmorning, but sandy forced a last-minute schedule change. debbie wassermann schultz will join us. >>> plus, we've got a slew of new swing state polls. what's this about minnesota? what do those minnesota numbers really tell us about where and how this race is tightening. >>> but first, we made a big deal

mitt romney's numbers. romney leads the president with white men 66% to 32%, a 34-point lead. john mccain's lead among white men four years ago was half that. >> mitt romney may have a hard time relating to voters, but he is dialed into white men. they are very much attuned to what he is saying about the economy. >> reporter: in fact, in contrast to the president and that mtv town hall, his visits, like the one to "the view," romney sending his wife, ann, instead. his own appearances carefully courting his base. a dozen appearances this year alone with popular conservative host sean hannity. and in canton, ohio, tonight, supporters here hopeful they can overcome the president's small, but stubborn, lead here. the one thing he says that resonates the most? >> resonates most? jobs. >> reporter: jobs, economy, we hear that so much, diane. and with that gender gap among men helping mitt romney, that's why the obama campaign focusing so much on undecided women who very much could hold the key now to a second term for barack obama. diane? high stakes on both sides. >> all right. yeah, david, an

and understands that running is very hard on families. it is very tough. after the last campaign when john mccain won, i made this recording for my husband. "sweetie, i am never doing this again." he laughed. he said, "you say that after every pregnancy." true, true, and yet i have five boys. i will tell you when the fifth boy -- those are the days when you never knew what you were having -- when he popped out, i turned to mitt and said, "that is all i got." it was a long time waiting for the first granddaughter. i have five sons. you had a daughter. i have 18 grandchildren. guess how many are boys -- 13. i am surrounded. by the way, i have all brothers. i had to learn how to play football and baseball and play and roughhouse and everything else. life is interesting, and the boys taught me amazing lessons, and i appreciate them so much. i could have nearly killed them when they were kids, but they taught me how to be open and how to be open with your feelings and how to express your feelings openly. i was shy. the thought that i am even up here on the stage with a microphone in my hand is wonderf
washington, d.c. reporter said about all of this. john mccain. >> for days and days they told the american people something that had no basis in fact whatsoever. that is the president of the united states. also, by the way, he said he immediately ordered action to be taken. no action was taken over seven hours now. we find out the secretary of defense decided not to take any action. said the other day this is as bad as watergate but i said nobody died in watergate. this is massive coverup or not acceptable service to american people. >> dana: it doesn't matter election, they will continue to be on this to find out information. a hearing is scheduled for november 15. one of your old pals, i don't know. i guess i can't call her an old pal. she said this is basically a made up story. >> greg: the definition of a made-up story to eleanor cliff, won the fnc beater two reading theth bitter column by maureen dowd. hood ornament of the main stream media. refusing to acknowledge a real scandal. how is she an intel expert? if she was special agent cliff, somehow related to somebody killed, after cal
the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here, a very popular republican. he's also going to talk about the economy. that's really his wheelhouse. yesterday's gdp report was pretty favorable. the obama campaign saying this is proof that the economy is starting to rebound, but mitt romney in a big speech in iowa on the economy said just the opposite. >> today we received the latest round of discouraging economic news. last quarter, our economy grew at just 2%. after th
obama in 2008. john mccain was aggressively pro war in middle east, and appeared to be headed in the wrong direction by colin powell. the same neo-conservatives have gone into the romney camp. so colin powell is behind barack obama again. >> he the president got us out of war, and did not get us in any new wars i think we ought to keep on the track that we are on with respect to governor romney i have the utmost respect for him. but as i listen to what his proposals are, especially with respect to dealing with our most significant issue with the economy, it's cut taxes and compensate for that with other things. but that compensation does not cover all of the cuts intended or the new expenses associated with defense. >> cenk: so interesting intelligent comments about mitt romney foreign policy and domestic policy. but john sunuunu has a different idea why colin powell is backing barack obama. >> frankly when you take a look at colin powell. you have to wonder if that is based on issues or is there a slightly different reason for preferring barack obama. >> what reason would tha

? that is the exact same number that obama beat john mccain by in ohio. so what we're saying -- karl rove is saying that all the polling numbers say one thing but when push comes to shove, who is planning on voting for whom, the number goes the other way to romney. quick point on the campaigns. i'm thrilled they're back. they're both back at it. mitt romney, went into it and brought things back where they should be. they should be on the economy. we have that huge jobs number tomorrow morning. romney points out that he is all over the jobs, he is the one that creates jobs. obama went to a weird place. talking about green energy, i don't know where -- >> dana: we'll talk about that later. >> bob: can i point out -- >> dana: kimberly and greg haven't had a chance to talk. >> bob: sorry. >> dana: kimberly, karl's prediction was he believes that it will be 51-48 with romney winning, carrying at least 279 electoral college votes. your thoughts? >> kimberly: romney by 3%. i think he will go for it, he will win with 280 electoral votes. i believe he is going to take ohio by margin large enough to be conte
. but you know, four years ago we saw john mccain and sarah palin come here to pennsylvania the last minute. we have seen other republicans like bob dole in '96 and president obama as well make pitches here in pennsylvania. they were not successful either. fred? i guess we'll find out on november 6th, right? >> just three days away. appreciate it. we'll check back with you throughout the afternoon. >>> it has been five days since superstorm sandy and the gas crunch in new jersey is so severe that the governor there is calling for gas rationing. plus, will polling places in new jersey be up and running in time for the election? we'll see what's being done. to . while energy development comes with some risk, north america's natural gas producers are committed to safely and responsibly providing generations of cleaner-burning energy for our country, drilling thousands of feet below fresh water sources within self-contained well systems. and, using state-of-the-art monitoring technologies, rigorous practices help ensure our operations are safe and clean for our communities and the environment.
in montana. >> so john mccain is heading to montana. >> ryssdal: and they carefully plot strategy to help shape the message for voters. >> also we can sort of highlight mccain's hypocrisy for campaigning with rehberg, because mccain is such a fiscal hawk and denny's such a big spender obviously being a member of the approps committee. >> yeah. it's not nearly as sexy as i think some people would want it to be. >> okay, thanks, folks. >> no, this is mostly public information. you just need to know where to look at it. and what you do is you put together the political history of a candidate-- every vote that they've ever taken, every political statement that they had made, any contradictions that you might find. business dealings that they might have that they might have had before being in congress. or even business dealings they had while they were in congress. >> i'll never support nor take a pay raise. >> ryssdal: here's where their research pays off. they share it with other outside groups, who then make ads that show up in montana-- ads like this one, made by a group called citizens f
day. essentially, obama won the election before election day. john mccain won the election day vote but obama had already won the election in the early voting period. we have already had 1 million people voted north carolina. -- voters in north carolina. at this point, the democrats are doing better on the early voting, it appears. we don't have a vote count so we don't know exactly what the tally is. if you look at things -- we know things like number of active americans who have voted and that is up from the percentage who voted in 2008. percentage is greater this time at this juncture that was in 2008. the number of younger voters who tend to be more for obama than for running a, a greater percentage is up this time compared to 2008. those are all good signs for the obama campaign. but, what that will mean at the end, we don't know but the obama campaign had a good signal from that. host: we have a chart from an article in the "atlantic." it talks about absentee ballot request in north carolina. host: the democrats made a gain of about 9000. in your observations, do you see more
to agree they have a much superior ground game than the one john mccain had in 2008 which a lot of people describe as almost nonexistent. they think they've almost closed the gap if not matched the obama ground game. the perception is it seems like it's right. the obama campaign does have a more robust operation on the ground. >> i think, you know -- >> joy ann -- >> go ahead, craig. >> i was going to say, you've got to think in a race that is as close as this one that the turn out to vote effort over the next week or so really could make the difference. >> absolutely. you look at what's going on right behind you and the way the democrats have sort of created an event, almost a carnival around voting because they rely so much on running up as much early vote as they can, this year they're adding the that, trying to cut into the republican dominance among absentee. one of the reasons republicans don't ever seem to have a ground game is a lot of what republicans do is they push for absentees and push for votes on election day. i remember in 2004 when i was working on the other side in campa
, just like john mccain. he made that exact same vote. we voted to make sure we did not go into a double-dip recession and lead the world into a global recession. i did not support sequestration. sequestration is based on the tea party premise that you do not raise revenues whatsoever. i believe we need to take a balanced approach. we are going to need to increase revenues, and we will need to cut agency budgets and stomach some cuts that many democrats are not going to be happy about. that is the only way we get to where we need to be on this. i think it is incumbent upon myself and everyone else in congress to get back to work after this election and come up with a solution that has both of those pieces. cuts and revenues, rather than embraces the tea party sequestration approach. >> do you believe it is possible to make medicare sustainable well into the future without converting it into a voucher system? would you ever support a voucher system? on it, it is there for them without any changes unless they want those kinds of changes. the congressman did not ask any seniors whether they
against hillary and had the war issue against her, beat her on the war issue, took on john mccain when he was really beaten down by then. and here he is facing romney who is a very tough opponent. so this is going to be a close election. they're somewhat equally matched. like one of those swords and sandals movies, though, each guy has a different weapon. they don't have the same tool kit. but one thing obama has in his tool kit, i'll go back to, is hope. you don't run for president with the name of barack hussein obama without hope. i talked to him recently at the al smith dinner, i can't say what he said, but the guy has confidence, i'll tell you that. he has confidence. something tells him he wins. i don't know what it is. it may be delusion narrary, but does have that confidence. he tells us to be hopeful, maybe this is the week he's got to have hope. like a pitcher in the seventh inning two runs back and has to put everybody out for the next three innings but has to hope the batters will come through and give him some bat. he has to hope, just like the pitcher in the seventh inning.
the cincinnati area. president obama did very well in hamilton county, eliminating any opportunity that john mccain had to win in 2008. so that's got to change if romney is going to win. of course you've got a very important personage in ohio who is working very hard in an area where he has influence. his name of course is senator robb portman, the guy who also played president obama in the debate drills leading up to that october 3rd debate in denver that changed everything in this campaign. bill: yeah. professor, thank you. you know i know you try to gauge like the little nuances in elections and we try to do the same. you can drive throughout ham milton county, west side of town, east side of town and count the yard signs. i'm telling you professor, it is almost 50/50, almost dead-even between the romney folks and the obama folks. if that is a gauge tough to go on based on that but thank you for your time. larry sabato, university of virginia there. >> thank you. bill: he said it. it is a battleground right, martha? we'll see which way we go throughout the day. back to you in new york. martha: f
population and retired veteran population as well. john mccain carried that very narrowly. it was practically a 50-50 with obama. there's no way it's going to be that close this time. but i want to see what presented president obama gets in virginia beach. if the bows out of the water, that tells me something. if it's a close race, that tells me something. just a few examples. host: washington, d.c., on our independent line. caller: i am interested to know where you think independent voters are going to go in this election. i don't mean just in terms of republican or democrat. how are the third party candidates going to affect the election? in particular, gary johnson? a lot of people tend to think he will take away votes from the republican nominee, but i think in new mexico and michigan he is taking votes away from obama. if you could give me some insight into what you think will happen there. guest: that is a good question because we tend to oversimplified about independent and third-party candidates. we need to remember first of all some people turn out to vote for them that would not mak
't. senator lindsey graham and senator john mccain who spent a lot of time investigating and this pushing this forward because of concern for our con shuts all across the world and as well as the lives of those four, pushed forward and say waited a second, we need the people who perpetrated this imcrew. the president said he is going to bring justice to them. we got one of them. they are in to your knowledge. we can't get access to them. he penned a letter signed by the. we need in there he had some success. >> steve: absolutely. senator graham, senator chambliss from the great state of georgia they got access to the guy. you would think that the white house would want to get access to the guy. nothing. here is lindsey graham. >> this duration is -- administration is trying to run out the clock when it comes to benghazi. this is a story that changes by the day. the president has been awol when this comes to benghazi, libya leadership. they have been denying and deceiving the public. the person i blame above all else is president barack obama. he has oversold the dismantling of al al qaeda
is working hard, and frankly has to work harder than he did in 2008. he won new hampshire over john mccain by a 10% lead. right now, polls show he has a slight lead, but statistically, the race is tied up between him and mitt romney. and that is why this really pretty small battleground state, the electoral votes, over 270 are needed, is getting a lot of attention from both candidates. here at this rally, president obama -- he talked about fees that the governor put in place, while he was in charge of the state. here is what the president said. >> there were higher fees for gas. there were higher fees for milk. there were higher fees for blind people who needed to get a certificate that they were blind. he raised fees to get a birth certificate, which would have been expensive for me. >> reporter: so that is a line, fred, that got some laughter here from his crowd of supporters, was not well received. no surprise, by the romney campaign. a spokesperson calling the attack laughable, saying "as governor mitt romney worked with democrats to close a 3 billion deficit, balanced budget by cuttin
romney's going to outperform john mccain in a lot of states he's going to lose and a lot of states he's going to win. i think it's fair to say that the idea of the split is very possible. that mitt romney's -- sort of the sheer momentum. and there is sort of two forces at work here in this campaign, right? the obama campaign metrics the census and demographics versus joe, i think what you and i feel like we see going on in this campaign the last two weeks, which is the good old-fashioned, well, which candidate is on his message at the right time, seems to be peaking, and that's romney, right? so the two different forces are converging. and i think in the battleground states, it's left this muddy picture. but i think that's why you see in a pennsylvania and a minnesota where the campaign itself hasn't interacted very much where romney's gotten more benefit of the doubt. so there is some consistency in the nonbattleground states. >> and when you talk about split, you're talking about mitt romney winning the popular vote and the president possibly winning the electoral college. >> that's
christie are going to be doing a big rally, john mccain, marco rubio, rob portman, one big rally in ohio and then spreading out. that's going to be a big event. and major surrogate action on both sides, nobody believing anything, as we like to say, on the field. >> and very interesting last thing about romney, two stops in new hampshire within the last three days, which is kind of fascinating given -- i mean, he's closing his campaign in new hampshire, but he's also going there on saturday. interesting that they think that those, what, five or four electoral votes could be really important for them. >> one other big piece of news this morning, president obama picked up the endorsement yesterday of new york city mayor michael bloomberg, citing superstorm sandy. the independent mayor wrote an op-ed for bloomberg.com saying he'll vote for the president because of his record on climate change. and it reads in part this. "the devastation that hurricane sandy brought to new york city and much of the northeast brought the stakes of tuesday's presidential election into sharp relief. one sees cli
deliberately stonewalling about libya? as we said a group of seniors is demanding answers today. senator john powell joins us? >> good evening, greta. >> greta: released seven letters from senator mccain and lindsay graham. they don't get answered. they were going over a period of time. are these letters sort of futile zwres to your or something happen from them? >> no, i've read the letters they ask the precisely the right questions. first of all, katherine heritage has done good reporting on day from one. david ignasius and he complimented fox news for raising these important questions. he listed a group of questions. some of which you raised here. he also says the time line of events should be provided before the election, not after the election. if i could make that point right now, you have so many questions about the commander in chief and what he did or what he didn't do. whether his orders were clear that this has to be cleared up before the election. so we the people that employ the commander in chief can make a decision whether we wanted to rehire him. and i was comment together sen
